What is the trick to getting the drain plug off on this bike to change the oil? I have a 17M socket ,but the radiator hose is in the way. Any suggestions? I guess I can go and buy a set of metric wrenches, but I hate to buy a whole set for one wrench. Is there a special tool in the tool kit that will work just for that?
I would have to check again but the other day when I had the tool pouch out, I believe there is a wrench in there for the oil drain plug. I am almost sure but would have to check again tomorrow. Billy.
Why noy buy the set? There are lots of nuts & bolts on your bike besides the oil plug, and they're not all 17mm. And the quality of almost anything you buy will be far better than what came with the bike.
Tell me about it! I figured out that you have to place the large pieces in first. Then follow up with the skinnier pieces like the screwdrivers and stuff. Believe it or not, the pouch went right back in. Give it a shot.
Just called O Reilly auto parts and they don't have the Purolater filters, but he has a "wix" brand that he cross referenced using the PL14612 number I gave him. He said it should work. Are "Wix" any good? $6.29
